The Grand Prismatic Spring is the largest and one of the most brilliant of the many springs in Yellowstone. The temperature of the water is around 60°C. The yellow, orange and brown colors are caused by small heat-loving microorganisms, names thermophiles. The intense blue color in the center is because of the sunlight gets scattered by fine particles in the water. Simply beautiful!

Happy Heating 🙂
